Our Kindergarten aims to provide a meaningful child centered, active learning curriculum that builds life skills, independence, confidence and resilience to support each child in achieving their potential and to make a smooth transition to school and society itself.

Hello my name is Claudia Dougherty, I have been working with children for 4 years. I love teaching. I am currently enrolled at UTEP. I am the Kindergarten teacher at Peace Lutheran preschool and I'm  very proud of it. I love making a difference in our community by teaching and impacting the children’s life in a positive way. I enjoy being fun, goofy especially when teaching. If I can make the students laugh and spread a little cheer at the same time, hopefully that will leave a positive impact and perspective on how our children view school. 


I am a very adventurous, I love to travel. I also draw and paint in my spare time. I love to take care of my health and try to exercise everyday. 


I love to make people smile especially my students. I appreciate Peace Lutheran preschool for giving me the chance of starting my career as a teacher and moving me that much closer to achieving my future goals.  I couldn’t be any happier for this opportunity and I'm excited to see the kids  continue to down their educational path.
